Y'know, I thought I did. But the only links I can find indicate that Rhapsody is still losing money. They have narrowed their losses, but I can't find the link which indicates they have actually turned a profit.

This is not about "one big player." It's about a half dozen companies which aren't profitable yet (regardless of their relative or absolute sizes), and face serious challenges getting to profitability. This clashes with the optimistic view that "subscription services are poised to supplant digital music purchases."
